Taiwan’s Superband:

Mayday 臺灣搖滾天團:五月天

This year, Mayday won six Golden Melody awards for their new album, Second Round. The awards included Best Band, Best Mandarin* Album, and Best Album Producer.* For Mayday, winning six Golden Melody awards in one year was a record.* Mayday’s favorite band is the Beatles. They love the Beatles’ message of peace and love. Therefore, when they were just a student band in high school (Back then, their name was “So Band.”), they followed the Beatles’ example. Mayday’s songs talk about love, friendship, and life. They also talk about important world problems, like environmental issues.* They want their songs to be fun, but they also want to say something meaningful.* At the Golden Melody awards show, Mayday told the world something important: They will only release two more albums. If this is true, then it’s a shame.* But just like the Beatles, Mayday is sure to influence many future bands. * Mandarin [ `m1nd4r6n ] n. 國語 * producer [ pr4`djus0 ] n. 製作人 * record [ `r5k0d ] n. 最高紀錄;最佳成績

今年金曲獎,五月天的新專輯《第二人生》一 舉拿下六項大獎,獎項包括「最佳樂團」、「最佳國 語專輯」、「最佳製作人」等。對五月天來說,一年 贏得六座金曲獎是他們的最佳成績。 五月天最喜歡的樂團是披頭四,他們喜愛披頭 四傳達出愛與和平的訊息,因此當他們還是個高中 學生樂團(當時他們的樂團名稱為「So Band」), 就追隨披頭四的腳步,他們在歌曲中大談愛情、友 誼和生活,也融入重大的全球問題,例如環境議題。 他們想讓歌曲聽來有趣,但也想為有意義的事情發 聲。 金曲獎上,五月天向大家發表一個重大的訊息, 那就是今後他們只會再發行兩張專輯。如果真是如 此,實在很令人惋惜,不過就像披頭四一樣,五月 天對往後的許多樂團必定會有深遠的影響。

* environmental issue [ 6n%va6r4n`m5nty ] [ `6]j8 ] * meaningful [ `min6;f4l ] adj. 有意義的 * It’s a shame. [ ]em ] 很可惜、遺憾的事。
